Kyle: Chill out, Bowboy. I wasn’t going to kill the creep. I just want him out of my neighborhood.
Connor: Excuse me for my lack of confidence. But Super-powers don’t make you god, you know.
A lot of old farts. Oh, Kyle.
Meanwhile, Eddie is all “Boys, if you’re done flirting now, we still have criminals to deal with, goddamn.”
Mostly I do not care about the Olympics, but I TRUST WE ALL KNOW MY FEELS ABOUT ARCHERS.
I feel like in the various universes that exist, all of the following couples get together to complain about people’s aim:
And I feel that I would draw them all snuggling on the couches (or the Hal/Ollie/Barry equivalent, because I feel that’s not snuggling) while watching the Olympics, if I could draw worth shit.
Kyle: Uh, Wonder Woman…I, uh, I’m probably going to need back up out there…
Diana: It’s “Diana.” Don’t stand on ceremony, GL - we’re in the same League.
Kyle: Says you.
Man not to be rude or anything but to call YJ Hal Jordan a dick is sort of unecessary because the dude has literally done nothing to anyone.
Oh, this so much.
I have no favorite GLs, and they all bug me equally much, except for Guy, who is an asshole. But whenever people cry and moan about Hal, it annoys me. On principle of their arguments being ridiculous.
But then, I generally role my eyes at anyone bitching about Hal at all (especially in a fandom that worships Guy Gardner, because Guy wins the “who is a dick” sweepstakes every time) because the minute Hal came back, all the GLs got their own books.
Unlike, say that time that Kyle was Green Lantern and we got told repeatedly how special he was. So, yeah, we get told that Hal is special a lot, but it’s hardly any different than when Kyle was The One, True Green Lantern.
And yes, Hal Jordan is a privileged white dude. So is Guy Gardner. So is Alan Scott. So is Batman. So is TIM DRAKE, fandom’s one true darling. So is Wally West, fandom’s other One True Darling. And god knows my dash is full of Tony Stark, Steve Rogers and Clint Barton - also all privileged white dudes (Hi, Avengers movie that is full of them but somehow not nearly as terrible as Hal Jordan having a book! Maybe it would be less terrible if Hal was “fucking” Tony Stark.)
So, tl;dr: All of Fandoms Reasons For Hating Hal (And Barry) Are Bullshit and worse, Hypocritical Bullshit.
… Aaaaaaand this rant was a bit of a tangent from the original post. I should possibly not make posts before noon.
